Why is there no cure for Cancer?
I hear that there is for all forms of Cancer , but it is just about the money.

I mean wouldnt they make as much money with a cure as with treatments and hospitaization ?

This is just heartbreaking .....

My best friend had cancer.
He had a really bad cancer, actually.
He's completely cured of it now though.
There's a very simple cure for cancer.
I know this woman, she's an herbalist, and she told my friend how to cure himself.
The herbalist didn't even give us herbs or anything to use, she just gave us some very simple steps to follow.
Don't eat anything for 40 days exactly. Drink water a lot!!!
Once about 36 days is up, white puss will be coming out of your skin. That's the dead cancer cells. Take a shower. Clean yourself off.
After about 4 more days the cancer is gone and you can start eating again.
What that does, when you don't eat, is that it doesn't feed the cancer cells, so they can't spread. So they die.

I'm sure there are probably cures out there for cancer, but the pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, doctors and what have you wouldn't make as much money if they just cured someone. It's sad but people in this world are only about what benefits them and not what helps others.

Don't we make out own money? Why don't we just make enough money to donate to find a cure for cancer, that story is horrible. /:

I know it's really heart breaking. They have treatment, but nobody has been able to come up with a cure. Many scientist all over the world are working hard to try to find a cure. It's sad, but I hope and pray one of them does find it soon.Those treatments are so terrible though. Chemotherapy is way too painful.
People are working on it.

cuz nobody donates anymore and our taxes go to less importants causes like...saving some species of animal that is useless or only has like 2 left

well...because cancer is very complicated and i guess to find a cure takes MUCH money and research but with the resession and all to find a cure would be harder!

The suggestion that there's too much money being made from cancer for researchers to bother finding a cure is nonsense, as is any suggestion that a cure exists but is kept secret for reasons of profit. The cancer cure conspiracy theory is a sort of game played by people who've never had , studied or been close to cancer.

I live in the UK. Our health care, including our cancer treatments, are paid for by the state. Cancer treatments cost the government billions, yet our treatments are the same as in the US, whence most of these conspiracy theories originate. If there were cheaper, once-and -for-all cures, BELIEVE ME the government would be paying for them rather than expensive conventional treatments. As it is I may be back at any time for more expensive treatment. And our doctors are salaried - if the cancer rate doubled, they wouldn't make one extra penny.

Any drug company discovering a cure would make far more money than they can have dreamed of making up till now – fame and fortune beyond their wildest dreams.

If there were a 'secret cure', doctors, scientists, researchers etc would be watching their relatives die and dying themselves rather than revealing a 'secret' it - they and their families develop cancer at the same rate as the rest of the population.

Every medical professional in the whole world would have agreed to keep existence of a cure secret. Every single one. One blabbermouth, one disgruntled researcher or sacked nurse and the whole conspiracy’s blown. But the papers and other media haven't had a sniff of such a story

And of course if there were some secret cure, being kept from us because cancer's such a money-spinner, many hundreds of people at least would have had to be cured by it in order to prove it worked. Why the silence from them, and from their delighted friends and families?

There is no guaranteed cure for any cancer yet, but quite a few cancers CAN already be cured: seven out of ten children are cured of cancer; testicular cancer, Hodgkin's disease, and many cases of leukaemia can all be cured in adults with chemotherapy, most skin cancers are cured with surgery and many cases of thyroid cancer and cancer of the larynx are cured with radiotherapy.

Many other types of cancer are also cured if they are found early enough.

The problem with finding a 'cure for cancer' is that cancer is not a single disease, it's an umbrella term for over 200 different diseases. The difficulty with finding a cure is that different cancers are caused by different things, so no one strategy can prevent them They all respond to different treatments so no one treatment can cure them, so there isn't a magic bullet that cures all cancers and there never will be.

There'll never be a Eureka moment when a single substance or procedure is discovered that will reverse all types of cancer. But the dedicated (and underfunded) work that's going into cancer research means that new and improved treatments and possibly ways to reverse some types of cancer will be discovered.

Because Bush put an 8 year hold on government funded research for stem cells.

awww that' so sad and touching at the same time.

there's no cure for cancer because no on ehas figured it out yet, just like malaria, and all those other ones..although my great uncle has work on it his entire life and if he gets HIS dying wish, then he'll figure it out...


[email protected]!
There probably is a cure and we just haven't found it yet, think of how long it took for them to find the polio vaccine. Hopefully someday someone finds one and doesn't use it just to get rich but to help humanity.

And by the way, they don't not search for a cure becasue they make more money treating it. That's just stupid to think that. There are thousands of companies trying to find a cure.

Joe, the idea that there is a cure for cancer that is being withheld from cancer sufferers because the doctors and hospitals wouldn't make as much money is a hoax that has been around for as long as there has been an internet. And that is just what it is - a hoax. Just stop and think about it for a second - all of the doctors and all of the hospitals, and all the insurance companies and all of the chemical manufacturers would ALL have to be in on one gigantic conspiracy with not a soul opening their mouths! Do you really think that is in any way realistic? Of course not. It's a hoax just as sure as all of the "natural" remedies for cancer are hoaxes. Cancer is a very painful fact of living. It has always been with the human race and it will be for the foreseeable future. What IS encouraging is that all of the millions/billions being spent on cancer research are providing much better treatments which have helped to alleviate the suffering of millions of cancer patients all over the world.

No they wouldn't make as money with a cure. My partner's first battle with her cancer cost over $200,000 and at the begining of her third battle, the bills got over $150,000 before her medicare kicked in. She has had three battles and someone has made over $600,000 from it. If they had just cured her the first time, they may have only gotten $200,000. It is very sad that our country pays more attention to money then lives. Her cancer came from some DNA issues and only a couple of hundred adults get it a year so when she got it in 2006, there wasn't anyone even bothering to research it in adults. Now there is a little research being done but it is three years behind what she is going through. It makes me sick that I will probably lose her during her next battle (if she can make it through the recovery) and it is all because of greed. To me, her life is priceless and if someone could cure her then I think they should.
